A New Day... A New Challenge

Today begins a new challenge
The theme this week is Challenge #22 - Show Us Your Bling!  Here is my card using Bugaboo: Theodore - Birthday Sign. Have I told you how much I ADORE Bugaboo images!!! I just L-O-V-E them! So here is my card:

I love Theodore! He is adorable!  I used my Prismacolor Pencils to color the image. The papers are all scraps from my stash. Rhinestones from my stash, the triangles are brads from my stash and I edged around the white with a copic marker. I used one of my Nestabilities to cut that. I also used my millenium to detail a bit that didn't look too great. I did some paper piecing as usual LOL I popped the head and arms so it really gave the dimension that he was behind the words. I popped the Happy as well and I double popped the gift so that it stood out a little further from Happy to truly give it the look that it was in front of it. And that is that! I hope you enjoy!! Make sure to stop by Bugaboo... You will find some really great images there for everything!


And I hope you enjoy my teammates cards as much as I do!! I can't believe the talent that I get to work with.. I am so blessed! I get to learn something new from them all the time!! And I don't think they even know it ;) Or how much I appreciate all them and being part of their team!!

So, I'm off to work for another day. Oh please please please let us hear something this week from immigration. The 12th will be exactly five months and we are almost there! I hate not hearing anything at all.. it is so frustrating! Just silence and you wait and wait and wonder. *sigh* Soon..  I hope you all have a wonderful day/evening! I appreciate you all so much.. I love seeing your comments and then going to visit your blogs as well!

This is such a cute card Susan and I like your layout. Your image is so cute and I like the way the "happy" stands out from the card.
I spotted your card at the MIM blog and popped over to say hello.
